Antique Rocker Before & After

This little chair was having issues with the frame as well as all the inner workings!
Thanks to Scott at Turner's Fine Finishes; the frame was beautifully repaired and given new life.
We re-worked the inner parts; saving the original horse hair!
New webbing fixed the sunken seat and new fabric gave this chair many more years to be treasured by the owner!

Twin Chairs

These chairs were done in an Oatmeal color fabric that has the look and feel of Wool!



The story of wool starts in Asia Minor during the Stone Age; approximately 10,000 years ago!
Woolens became part of the riches of Babylon.
In Spain wool trade help finance the voyages of Columbus.
In 1377 England's King Edward III "the royal wool merchant"; stopped woven goods imports and domestic weaving of  foreign wool.
By 1660 wool textile exports were 2/3 of England's foreign commerce.
Despite the fact that England discouraged the wool industry in North America, a few smuggled sheep had become of 100,000 sheep by 1665 and the wool industry flourished in America.
Both Washington and Jefferson had flocks of sheep and both were inaugurated in wool suits.
Wool is a renewable source as sheep thrive in all 50 states.
Sheep fill our fiber needs today just as they have for centuries.

ATV Seat......

This seat was done in a Vintage Vinyl!
Remember the 1960's glitter vinyl that was popular in boats?
This is it!
Gotta love that this customer was not afraid to make a statement with the seat!

Side Chair Before and After

This is such a cute little side chair.  
And is definitely in need of a make-over!
Going from 1980's Mauve.......


To a Seaglass and Green!......


Love how this turned out!
With the addition of a small lumbar pillow made out of the welt fabric from the chair; this chair has some splash of color and a little character!

Iron vs. Steamer

 Running a garmet steamer over your upholstered furniture can give it new life!
 The steam deodorizes and sanitizes without using any chemicals.
AND you will not have this happen!
 Most upholstery weight fabrics are not made to have hot metal applied directly to the fabric!
If your cushions are starting to look a little shabby; use a steamer!
Do not let the head of the steamer rest directly on the fabric as it could mark it as well; but never use an iron! 
We don't think that a melted image of your iron is something you want to look at everyday!
